    Default Unequivocal winner?

    Hi y'all. So the original thread went dead and I been comparing notes, discovering my likes n dislikes, had some overwhelming feedback from you guys to narrow my choices down to the following simply seductive frags:
    (Listed in no particular order)

    *Tea for Two
    *YSL La Nuit
    *Versace Dreamer
    *Body Kouros
    *Chanel Allure PH
    *Egoiste
    *Dior Homme
    *lolita lempicka au masculin
    *antaeus
    *secret obsession CK

    {{I am a hetrosexual, 22-year old male.}}
    Whatever's most wearable in winter, during the day on a daily casual basis (college) and just leaves those around longing for just another whiff (girls only =D)

    Could you lot rate the following from 1 to 10 (one being your not-even-thinking-once choice). I have only just dabbled into the frag world and I must admit, I am kinda confused by reading such split opinions on literally every single juice on the planet!

    Help me pick a winner, please!

    There is no real "winner" among the listed fragrances, and not all would agree that they are seductive. Some fragrances might be more popular, but that doesn't mean you'll be irresistible wearing them.

    Tott I am sure no frag on it's own can make a man irresistible, lol. I was merely referring to the comparative seductiveness of these juices. Popularity doesn't concern. I was thinking more of a consensus where base-noters could help me reach a unanimous decision? =)

    Egoiste 1-the rest 0! and it's befitting too since the vanilla note is one I am quite fond of, thanks hednic =)

    I don't want to try rating them, but this is how I would rank them: Egoïste, Body Kouros, Antaeus. The others don't rate in my book, or I don't know them.

    Note: these will probably make you just as irresistable to men as to women. You must be considerate when you politely decline their advances. You can't hold these poor guys responsible for their actions.

    Versace Dreamer, Chanel Antaeus and YSL La Nuit would be my top picks

  10. #10

    Default Re: Unequivocal winner?

    Honestly the only ones that work on a "daily casual basis" that still have sex appeal are Chanel Allure PH and The Dreamer (and also La Nuit, I suppose), with Allure being the easiest wear. The rest are specific occasion scents.

    I think they are all fantastic! But I am gay and know that they all highly appeal to other gay men.

    Default Body Kouros or Dreamer?

    Hi, if you had to pick a seductive scent, one that can be worn everyday to college by a 22-yr-old, what would you go for and why? BK or Dreamer?

  16. #16

    Default Re: Body Kouros or Dreamer?

    Body Kouros, by several country miles. Unlike The Dreamer it smells good.

    The Dreamer. Unlike Body Kouros, it won't rot your teeth.

    I agree with this. If I had to choose one based on your critieria, they would be:

    everyday - Dreamer
    seductive - body kouros

    YEs sculptureofsoul, I did. But now I am trying to narrow it down even further, choose my day scent. It's winters here in my country btw, temperatures don't go above 20 degrees in the day.

  27. #27

    Default Re: Body Kouros or Dreamer?

    I would not choose out of this 2 because they are both so "unique" that they may tire your nose pretty fast. This 2 are 2 out of maybe 4 fragrances that I washed away when I wore them to work. Anyway if I really HAD TO pick 1 then it would be Dreamer

    but what about after the top notes? 15 mins later it's almost heaven!

  35. #35

    Default Re: Body Kouros or Dreamer?

    top notes of dreamer are horrible. BUT the drydown and base are just absolutely amazing.

    DO NOT GO BY REVIEWS FOR BK. I almost blind bought it, but I'm so glad I didn't. Smells like medicine.

  36. #36

    Default Re: Body Kouros or Dreamer?

    Out of these two: Dreamer

  39. #39

    Default Re: Body Kouros or Dreamer?

    I'd definitely pick Body Kouros. I'm sorry, but Dreamer literally smells like a wet ashtray to me during its opening (not nice tobacco leaves, but old burnt cigarette ashes).

    For winter and college age, in the not too expensive range, I'd also look at Paco Rabanne's 1 Million, Burberry Brit, CK One Shock, Le Male, and Mont Blanc Individuel.

  40. #40

    Default Re: Body Kouros or Dreamer?

    Neither, but if I was forced to pick one I'd go with BK. Easier to understand..

  41. #41

    Default Re: Body Kouros or Dreamer?

    Never tried BK, but I own The Dreamer, and although I love it, I rarely wear it. There are far more versatile scents out there.

  42. #42

    Default Re: Body Kouros or Dreamer?

    Tbh I'd pick both.

    Default Re: Body Kouros or Dreamer?

    Dreamer is far too simple and uninteresting. Just big doses of Coumarin, Lyral, and a hint of woody/tobacco notes.

    Body Kouros, while also having big doses of similar aromachemicals in the drydown, is a much more full, complex, intriguing scent. The spice notes, incense notes, and eucalyptus all interplay for a very interesting effect that is much more appealing and sophisticated than Dreamer IMHO.

    I think even Bogart Pour Homme (used sparingly) does nearly the exact same thing Dreamer does (albeit much better and a hint more masculinely).

    i dunno about bk, but i owned the dreamer for a few weeks and now i'm selling it. it has a very unpleasant opening.. traces of the opening remain through the middle kinda smells like a freshly opened pack of cigarettes to me. its powdery, sweet and floral with a mentholated sort of synthetic tobacco.. eh. theres better stuff out there

  47. #47

    Default Re: Body Kouros or Dreamer?

    Body Kouros, by far...

  48. #48

    Default Re: Body Kouros or Dreamer?

    As I said, I definitely prefer BK, but for a nice tobacco fragrance from Versace, skip Dreamer and check out Versace Man (in the purple bottle). I don't care for Dreamer, but Versace Man is a really nice, unique, powdery, soapy scent with almost a "grape powder" feeling.
